Pointlessbanter.net is an interesting blog. The author takes on many different topics. The blog has been around since August of 2004 and I feel will be around for a long time to come. After reading through many of his blogs, I found the one on pay per review almost humorous considering what I was doing.
Who am I to review this blog? Will someone pay me to review something? Obviously so! Anyways I donâ€™t know him (I am guessing him based on his about me section, but I could not find a name or anything definitive so if I am wrong I am sorry), but here I am reviewing what he has written.
The blog is laid out in a simple manner. The main part of the blog has a white background with black or dark grey letters. It has a simple red bar separating the different posts with a dark grey background. Simple, but it is actually a nice presentation. It doesnâ€™t have distracting advertisements like so many are doing today. I hate advertisements on blogs; I donâ€™t think Google pays that well, luckily this site just has a couple at the top.
The posts are interesting. They take on many different topics/categories: celebrities, love, drunken mistakes, hate mail, pop cultureâ€¦ the list goes on and on. A blog should be about many different topics so I think the author hits that on the money. The posts themselves keep the reader interested. I find his evaluations on many things a good read. It has something for everyone. Even though cheesy crackers with peanut butter got ripped in his March 27, 2007 post, I still cannot bring myself to reaching through my screen and pushing the â€œscrlkâ€ button on his keyboard.
Keep in mind that this blog does have some fowl language, but it is kept to a minimum and helps to express his feelings.
I would recommend this blog to others. It appears to be thorough in topics and interestingly discussed. I give this blogger a 4 on our scale, but as he puts it who am I to review something. Keep blogging, you got my interest. My only problem is deciding what category to suggest the blog be posted under. I think I will leave it at Humor even though he talks about so many different things.
